  5. Place the cut-out dough on a lined baking tray, brushing the tops with a little more Sno-Pro.

Chef tips:

  • Scones are great for lunch boxes - split them in half and fill them with sandwich fillings, or serve alongside soups and curries as a bread alternative.
  • Scones need to be eaten the same day as they don’t keep very well but you can split them and toast them for breakfast or a quick snack.
  • You can also split them and add low protein cheese and place them under the grill for a quick cheese on toast as a snack or lunchtime meal served with salad.
